Did Deion Sanders Take Shot at 49ers Front Office?



    Did Deion Sanders Take Shot at 49ers Front Office?

    Deion Sanders entered the NFL as the fifth overall pick in the 1989 NFL Draft.

    After five seasons in Atlanta, "Prime Time" signed a one-year deal with the 49ers.

    His one season in San Francisco was arguably the best of his career, which culiminated in the 49ers' 49-26 win over the Chargers in Super Bowl XXIX.

    On Thursday morning, Sanders got nostalgic.

    "PRIME!!!! #TBT 49ers baby! When football and Management was real in San fran! Thank u Eddie Debartelo,Carmen Policy & Dwight Clark. Love yall dudes to life. #1stRing #21reasons," he posted on Instagram.

    Is Sanders implying that football and management isn't "real" in San Francisco right now?

    At halftime of the 49ers' loss to the Seahawks on Oct. 22, Sanders was critical of the 49ers organization.

    “The management and ownership should be ashamed,” Sanders declared. “This team is three years removed from the Super Bowl and they put out this product ... This is pathetic.”

    Sanders made the comments with the 49ers, who had racked up 17 net passing yards, trailing 17-0.

    After "mutually parting ways" with Jim Harbaugh, and firing Jim Tomsula after one season, the 49ers are currently searching for a new head coach.
